On this eve of Thanksgiving, I would like to bring my readers attention to a crucially important environmental activism initiative called The Climate Reality Project.
” The Climate Reality Project, founded and chaired by former Vice President and Nobel Laureate Al Gore, is dedicated to unleashing a global cultural movement demanding action on the climate crisis. Despite overwhelming international scientific consensus on climate change, the global community still lacks the resolve to implement meaningful solutions. The Climate Reality Project exists to forge an unwavering bedrock of impassioned support necessary for urgent action. With that foundation, together we will ignite the moral courage in our leaders to solve the climate crisis.
The Climate Reality Project employs cutting-edge communications and grassroots engagement tools to break the dam of inaction and raise the profile of the climate crisis to its proper state of urgency. With a global movement more than 2 million strong and a grassroots network of Climate Leaders trained by Chairman Al Gore, we stand up to denial, press for solutions, and spread the truth about climate change to empower our leaders to solve the climate crisis.”
“Nobody can solve this alone. But a look back at history shows us that when millions of people come together and use their voices to demand action, real change happens. Together, it’s time to speak out. It’s time to spread the truth about climate change so we empower and inspire others to work toward solutions.
We can stop the pollution that’s disrupting our climate — and we can turn to clean energy to power our world. Renewable energy is affordable, reliable, and available today. And our leaders must set the policies in place to make clean energy available to everyone. Together, we are calling on the leaders of the world to act now and solve this crisis. Reality is on our side.”
Instead of feeling helpless and overwhelmed by the magnitude and enormity of the global crisis that we are facing, this is an organization that you can join in order to exert pressure on our leaders to take the necessary steps to solve this crisis before it is too late. The Climate Reality Project can help you inform yourselves so that you speak out authoritatively and be heard. You can donate money to support the effort. It is only by doing your part in your own way, that can you fight against the dangerous denial and paralysis that has resulted in this dire and ever worsening crisis. Please join and become active in this organization. Together we can make a difference.
